    Nasty bokeh...but that's pretty hard to avoid at f8 on such a bright,
    intricately busy background like dead grass/shrubs...

    I don't know, but that's not the lens Bret was using for that image.
    I don't think it's a Canon-Nikon issue, really.
    Both companies have lenses that produce very nice background renditions.
    Remember, too, that there are many aspects of particular shots that help
    determine bokeh. It's not just the optic and aperture mechanism. -It's
    also the aperture itself, the distance between the subject and its
    background...the relative distance of camera...to subject...to background,
    the severity (or lack of) highlights within the background, etc., etc., etc.
    Those are nice, though I really don't think we can make a general statement
    one way of the other as to which has the "best color." As you already
    noted, both are certainly capable of fantastic color. Where the color is
    poor, it's usually something we're doing wrong... :)

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting miracles handholding that combo (400+1.4x),
    but that background was damned Buttugly!

    SO that is what those cranes look like up close! My brother lives in
    northern British Columbia, Canada and when flocks of Sandhill Cranes fly
    over he reports to me in away over in the east in Ontario for it means
    Spring is on its way 'up north'. I gather they also make their own
    honking noises as they fly over the mountain ranges. You should send
    your photo to a bird identity collection for this is a better capture
    than what I have seen previously in such texts. <grin>
